Ainsley Maitland-Niles responds to nasty Arsenal fans after Huddersfield

Arsenal beat Huddersfield 2-1

Arsenal’s top four hopes were boosted on Saturday away at Huddersfield.

The Gunners beat the Terriers 2-1 at the John Smith’s Stadium.

Alex Iwobi opened the scoring for the Gunners, before Alexandre Lacazette bagged a second before the break.

A late own goal from Sead Kolasinac ensured that Arsenal’s record of failing to keep a clean sheet away from home in the league this season continued.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles responds to nasty Arsenal fans

Attention has been drawn to Ainsley Maitland-Niles’ Instagram account since the Huddersfield game.

Maitland-Niles, 21, has been drafted into Unai Emery’s side in recent weeks.

Hector Bellerin’s injury means that Maitland-Niles now has the chance to impress at right-back.

Against the Terriers, the youngster had a solid performance. He capped it off by setting up Lacazette for the decisive goal in the game.

However a bunch of Arsenal fans have decided to post nasty messages to Maitland-Niles on his IG account.

Rather than ignoring them, the young Gunner has responded to his detractors.

It’s a bit sad he has to read all this from Arsenal supporters, but at least he seems to be taking it well.

Were I a supporter I’d see someone like Maitland-Niles, passionate about the club, young, talented and never one to shirk his responsibilities and I might give him the benefit of the doubt y’know. Particularly after he provided an assist in a football match Arsenal won…

Maitland-Niles handling that better than 99% of the nutters on twitter who lose their shit over anything would. Fair play to the kid.
